1. check if there are lights on the specific router port where you have connected the Vista (e.g. if it is on port 2, check if there are lights on #2 at the front panel of the router).
2. check the ip address by going to command prompt (click start-run-type cmd press enter. on the command prompt, type ipconfig/all)
3. ip address should be similar to what your Windows XP is getting. Subnet mask, gateway, and DNS servers should be identical.

Eg. If XP has a 192.168.1.100 IP, your Vista should have 192.168.1.x IP address where x is a variable number other than 100.

4. If your IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS seems aligned for both PCs, check your browser settings. Open IE, go to tools, internet options, network connection and make sure that never dial a connection is selected.

We have two computers and we are trying to set up a network so both computers can use internet, the host computer has windows vista and coble modem the other computer has windows xp and is about 275'...


Hi.
You are going to need two things for this to work.
First, you need a wireless router, these usually run about $50-$60.
Then after you get the router, you need a wireless usb adapter, so that the xp computer can receive the signal from the router.

Connect the lan cable from the cable modem that is currently attached to the vista computer to the router, then connect a lan cable from the router to the vista computer.

The xp computer is easier.
After you have the router hooked up, just plug the usb adapter into the xp computer, install any software that comes with it, and after it install the drivers it will be able to connect to your router, and have wireless internet.

Make sure that you know the name of your router, that way you are connecting to the right one.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day.

Belkin N+N storage router doesn't work wirelessly


Hi, I had something like that with my Belkin Router N+N with USB F6D6230-4 V1, only I had a configuration wit a wired XP pc, Wireless XP and Wireless Vista. With both XP pc’s it was really plug and play, but with the Vista pc I had some problems to access the on the router connected USB drive. The Vista pc was connected to the network, and had Inet access. Other shared (network) drives were accessible on the Vista pc.

The first thing I tried was if I could access the drive trough its IP address, (\\routerIP in my case \\192.168.2.1), and I did get a question for a username and password. The only thing is that I tried all the regular names like Admin, Administrator, and so on, with my password but I did not get access.
On the internet there was no help to find for this model router on the Belkin websites (diverent country’s), the data on the Belkin websites is out of date, there is no support to find for new models. ………. So finely I did took the phone and did call the support desk…

Solution to my problem:
The problem seems to be in the Belkin storage manager program, that program works not correct under Vista. When I enter the routers IP and use the username “guest” without a password, it get access to it from my Vista pc. The follow thing I did was press the right mouse button on the drive, and press on “make connection” So..

\\RouterIP
Username : guest
Password : none


Hope, that this is also the solution to your problem.

I cant plot from AutoCad 2006, using My hp


hmmm.. we only have two computers at my work connected to a router. the designjet has a network card going straight to it. i connect to the router wireless and it reads vista. my boss connects to the design jet thru the router as well with a network card rj cable with xp pro. as for our printer it can be connected via router and does work fine but my boss has it directely connected to his computer and i share it off of his system. then we also have a zerox machine connected via router as well. maybe your router is going out? try a new one or a better one and see if that fixes it. it maybe defected or time for a new one.......

if it was working before then maybe its the router.

Windows xp wont connect to internet


Please check you LAN settings on your router (DNS) - usually it is 0.0.0.0 (assigned by provider)
Make sure your PC is using DHCP (TCP/IP properties -> Obtain IP Address Automatically & Obtain DNS server address automatically). Try "ipconfig /all" at others computers and compare with your PC (look at gateway & DNS). See if you can ping gateway and then outside address.

p.s. To access your router open Internet Explorer and enter http://192.168.0.1/
If it is not working, check the default gateway address on working computer and use it instead.

Just purchased laptop with windows vista home premium


If your PC has a wireless card, you can setup an AD-HOC network :

If your PC is XP: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/adhoc.mspx

If your PC is Vista: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/help/293c504f-b944-4d5d-835c-f080129bd5dc1033.mspx

If your PC only has a wired Ethernet connection, you may still connect the two using a Wireless Access Point/Router.

Once you have the two computers connected, you may do whatever networked operations you would like:

File & Printer Sharing is the most common:

XP: http://www.wellesley.edu/Computing/FileSharing/Windows/win2kxp.html
Vista: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/File-Print-Sharing-Windows-Vista.html

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer


Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.
Try next time contacting me through an online chat session. We can resolve the issue quicker while chatting together.
